5 signs your customers may need you to ‘uncomplicate’ their lives.
With the development of various accounting software programmes such as Xero and Quickbooks and the advent of digital tax returns, the role of the trusted accountant is changing. Accountants feel compelled to add extra value to their services and are finding they need to take on a more advisory role to stay relevant and solve more significant problems for their clients.
We know that, as an accountant, you have a head start on understanding the health of your customers’ businesses, and are there to help them find new solutions to problems that may yet grow. If you notice any of the following when consulting with your clients, you may be able to save them plenty of time and money by advising they work towards a single software platform.
The above 'triggers' are by no means exhaustive. There are plenty to find once you've turned your advisory antenna on. If you do spot any of these issues during discussions or other engagements with your customers, you could become an instant superhero by making a referral to a provider of a platform that can integrate all of their processes, workflows, data and operational reporting in one place. An article by James Ashford touches on the fact that accountants need to be looking at how to add value to their offerings as well as the traditional bookkeeping and compliance functions.
Clearly, we think our platform is the one you should be recommending, primarily if you use Xero. Take some time to have a look at the extent our applications integrate with it. Yet still, if we have prompted you to look at any platforms which will comprehensively service the needs and grow with your clients at a lower cost than the actual value of the issues above, then we are happy to have helped you on your way to being a hero!
